Experiments in Textured Knitting

For quite a while I was so taken with knitting lace that anything else just didn't catch my attention. Then last month, when it was colder - not as cold as it could have been - but definitely colder, I kept longing for a snuggly thick and warm wrap. No lace. No holes. But not boring stockinette stitch either. So I cracked open the Treasuries and tried out all the cable patterns that looked good to me, and gave up several attempts at wraps with fiddly cable needles. I wanted something simple and easy and fun to knit, with cable-like texture. And I came up with this.....

Modified version of Twist Stitch lattice with moss stitch and small bobble-like knots at the bottom edge
